Pork steak recipes are easy recipes to cook! You can prepare pork steaks easily but the best way to honor it is to simply fry it. In fact, it's easier to cook than pork chops.  

If you love pork chops, then you'll love the pork steak even more! Pork steaks and pork chops are similar in how it's prepared, but the great thing with pork steaks is that there is none of the layer of fat and skin that makes it curl up into itself. That's the biggest problem with pork chops. That's why when cooking pork chops, it's best to cook pork chops that are thicker so it doesn't curl up and promote uneven cooking. 

For pork steaks, you don't get that curling problem. You get an even tastier pork meal with this cut that's even more tender than the pork chop since it has pockets of fat that run through it. Here is the most important cooking tip to remember when cooking pork steaks:


Cook pork steak like a regular steak. 

What you have to remember is to treat it like a steak. Since this pork meat cut has connective tissue and fatty layers separating the meaty parts, it's a great cut to cook longer, too, such as stews and braises since its connective tissues and fatty pockets will break down, leaving you with tender pork bites. 

Just like steaks, you want to allow your pork steak to sear before turning these over and searing the other sides. Cook in batches as if these were beef cubes to develop the best flavor from these fatty meat cuts.
